and scientists saw they were whole lot smaller than predicted. >> heather: nine days until the election and both campaigns are making most of limited time. president obama will be leaving the white house for orlando, florida in the next hour and crowd of supporters are awaiting remarks from governor mitt romney and crucial battleground state of ohio. we'll bring you that live. first, let's check in political kosh dented carl cameron. she streaming live -- let's check in with carl cameron. >> live in i-75 having left where the event was a little while ago. we are en route where we'll have second of three events in ohio today. all of which were impromptu as mitt romney had cancelled his schedule in virginia and come here and campaign in the buckeye state with his running mate. in salina, second day in a row he aggressively courted moderate independent swing voters, new rhetoric from him. it came in right on the border of indiana in a very republican party of ohio. what he is trying to do is energize the republican base but courted the moderate swing voters. listen. >> i know there is good democrat
to be consistent ones that we see. so you see both the obama campaign and romney campaign blanketing wisconsin, for instance, with surrogates. we saw vice president biden here last week as well as senator rubio, a key surrogate for mitt romney. last night, bill clinton was here. he is here this morning. yesterday vice presidential candidate paul ryan was here. we'll also be seeing, of course, president obama here today. you know, it's really interesting. something i want to point out, charles woodson of the green bay packers will be here to rally this crowd here at the airport ahead of president obama. he is the safety for the green bay packers. if you know about football, what does the safety do? they protect against long passes against, that's right, the hail mary, something the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> i like that football metaphor. i don't usually follow them all that closely. but thank you, brianna. appreciate it. little bit of a rough morning. traffic was terrible for you. >> yes. >> plus that three person rule. >> we had to drive around brooklyn, pick up cnn
areas facing president obama and governor mitt romney. >> you could have mitt romney winning the popular vote but losing the electoral votes. >> 270 electoral votes are needed for the presidency. both candidates could fall short. >> if you have the right combination of states brea king, you could have an electoral vote tied. which would be a real mess. >> double the the decision up to congress. >> be pushing to relatively unknown territory -- we would be pushing into relatively unknown territory. >> mitt romney would be favored to win if the house keep the republican majority in the senate and let the vice president and that stays in the hands of democrats, joe biden will probably be their pick. most presidential prognosticators say it is not likely at this point but not totally out of the realm of possibility. >> new york city mayor and john hopkins university graduate michael blumberg was in baltimore tonight to rally for the civil marriage protection act. the mayor said that for him, there are many reasons to support same-sex marriage. >> we are just a few days away from making histor
this on tuesday? >> the way we look at this is both short term and medium to longer term. short term, if romney gets in, then the market could actually suffer a little bit if he starts to be a bit more conservative on the fiscal side, obviously there is talk bernanke won't get a second term. who will come in. in terms of longer term, america has to tackle the fiscal deficit. if it continues to have a trillion dollar deficit every year, that will be a long term negative. so maybe the romney/ryan ticket is longer term positive. >> and jim, what prospect is there at this point for any resolution of the fiscal cliff before year end regardless who have is in the white house? >> i don't expect it to be resolved before year end. and i think the best scenario is a temporary stay of execution. go into maybe march or something where there will have to be some big decisions made both on tax reform and entitlements. but i think there will be a ton of uncertainty heading in to 2013. >> thank you again for getting up for us. be safe on your way back. and as mentioned, we want your hurricane stories. especial
. in fact, they are increasing production in both places. >> okay. >> there's another couple factors. one is the detroit news of romney. romney 's right to say -- they criticized his policies and supported obama's policies. on the issue of the auto bailout, they supported obama. >> okay. so once again, there's truth in both ads. >> yeah. it's complicated. >> it is . i guess in many of these ads, they are stretching the truth or leaving out key facts. they are not necessarily out right lies. >> right. that's the big thing thing. you are not getting the full context. >> okay. let's go to another ad. this is going to be pro romney. this one is getting a lot of play. a woman says she went on the internet to find out what romney's views were. >> those ads say mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraceptions seemed extreme. i looked into it. turns out romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother's life. >> she goes on to say that besides for her it's really all about the economy. talk to me about this. is
they have a 50.1% chance of winning. and you talk to the romney people, it's the same thing. both sides understand, it is close, and it could go either way. and anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a toss-up right now is such an ideologue, they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops and microphones for the next ten days because they're jokes. >> well, you know, i think mark shares part of what i feel and what i have found from talking to people over this past weekend. democrats especially is that there is a level of confidence, but it's laced with a level of anxiety that reduces the confidence that this is still 50/50. and you're absolutely right. anybody who says, you know, this thing is in the tank for one candidate or another, huh-uh. it's not there. i think you found the same thing. >> democrats who think they're going to win believe as they have all along romney is unelectable, he's just not an acceptable choice and will win because we've done enough to disqualify him. i spent friday night and friday day with romney. he's performing well in those bat
obama toured fema headquarters yesterday. both he and governor mitt romney have had to either cancel or postpone campaign events because of the storm. moms are now bracing for sandy's full impact, even if some are finding a silver lining in those gathering clouds. >> a lot of people would say you're crazy. >> i'd agree. >> reporter: i can tell you not too many surfers are out there right now. we've been watching as the beach is inundated with these waves, of course the morning high tide here about 20 minutes away. tony and allison. >> all right, we'll checking in, thank you doug. >> thanks, doug. >>> you guys are so busy, we appreciate it. >> so busy. even when i worked on sunday morning at ocean city, the water levels were already a foot and a half above normal at that point, but you can just imagine now what's going on out there. >> right. >> this storm is huge, and really a monster storm. and as tucker mentioned earlier, we cannot stress enough for people really to take it seriously. let's get a look now at our maps and show you what is going on. let's look at sental radar. here w
to washington to monitor the response to the storm. >> mitt romney cancelled an event and romney is campaigning today in ohio, iowa and wisconsin. both campaigns have pointed to ohio as the state most likely to decide the election and there's growing concern that the vote count could be as complicated as the vote recount in florida in 2000. we have that story. >> reporter: good morning. well, while many pundits say ohio could be the key to this election the truth is that the results from this state may take a good long while to determine. as ohio voters line up to cast early ballots attention is focusing on election day itself and the concern that it may drag on. mike dewine is the ohio's attorney general. >> there were 200,000 provisional ballots cast and these ballots cannot be counted until ten days after the election is over with. if it's a close election we're waiting for a while. >> reporter: people get to vote provisionally here. they originally requested absentee ballots but never filled them out and chose instead to vote on election day itself. t
